London photos: Ian Fleming’s James Bond book bench


Charity venture Books about Town placed 50 benches in the shape of giant books and painted to commemorate all sorts of great British writers around London this summer. The benches were auctioned off this evening. See Books about Town for more info.

I’ve saved my favorite bench for last: the one dedicated to Ian Fleming’s books about James Bond. (Click here for a larger version of the front.)
